Abstract

Rječina valley is a dominant valley structure in the wider area around the City of Rijeka. It is formed on impermeable flysch sediments and is surrounded by calcitic blocks, faults and thrusts of different geological age. Geomorphological features of the valley are complex and are a dirrect consequence of geological, hydrological, climatological, orographic, and antropological factors and features of the wider, observed area. According to the scale of dominance of previously mentioned factors and features on local levels throughout the valley, an mofrogenetic divison was made recognising the dominance of fluviodenudational morfogenetic tipe of relief. In this work, the observed area has been divided into three geomorphological units according to dominant geological and geomorphological structures. Antropological impact on the area is big and has a long history. Plans which include regulation and hydrotehnical works have been planned in accordance to population density and growing population demands which, if conducted will have an immense impact on geomorphological, hydroloical and biological features of the valley.
